Sadagaat group strives to encourage charitable spending. The group was able to accomplish many projects, the most popular of which is sponsoring Ramadan’s iftar for needy people, for eight years in a row.

In 2010, they were able to distribute 8,340 Ramadan packages during the daily Iftar program to nearly 1500 individuals for the entire month. This effort was carried out by more than 70 volunteers and extended to include hospitals, Quran schools, college dormitories and mosques.

The need for financial support in Sudan is increasing exponentially, and every year becoming a real challenge for us to expand Sadgaat umbrella of coverage, but they take it, in Sadagaat, as an opportunity to encourage everyone to contribute without fear, to give sadagaa with strong belief in Allaah and the rewards HE promised in this life and MORE rewards at the day of judgment, and to give only for the sake of pleasing HIM, and to give up to your ability.

They are hoping and working to cover this year 10,000 families with Ramadan package, and prepare iftar for 10,000 individuals on daily basis, bi izn allaaah,the cost of the bag per family so far is $40 or 200 SDG

Each girl represents a future, the future of the community, of the country, and indeed the future of the whole world.

Their Mission

Sponsor a girl with any amount you can and guarantee her an education. The aim is to help girls from poor families who had to leave school because they could no longer afford it. These girls end up working in homes or simply on the street begging. They have potential and just need someone to give them a chance. By just spreading the word you will help in changing their lives to the better.

Star Charity Cupboard

StarLogoStar Charity Cupboard (SCC) is a social group made up of family and friends from various professional backgrounds, whose sole purpose is to ease the suffering of the less fortunate. They work hard to reach people who other organizations have yet to reach, people whom everyone feels sorry for from a distance and wishes they could do something to help but don’t know how to. They have all year round activities which include:

  1. Preparations of Ramadan Hampers; throughout the years SCC has reached out to over 1000 families, providing each with enough rations to last for the entire months of Ramadan.
  2. Clothes projects; Taken for granted by most of us but having enough clothing is a bigger tragedy than most could imagine. SCC collaborates and coordinates with groups to collect used and new clothes from around the country. The donated items are sorted, cleaned and packaged to be distributed around the outskirts of the capital. In its biggest project the group reached out to over 5000 people.
  3. Winter blanket; In the dry winter of Sudan 100’s die and 1000s suffer from cold. The group tries to ease the suffering of people by collecting and buying winter clothes and blankets and distributing them in locations with the least shelter.
  4. Ramadan Iftar; given to the weary travellers who meet the azan in the street.
  5. Blood donation drives; done whenever there is a shortage of blood in the national blood banks.
  6. Children affected with cancer; the group works in collaboration with WE GROUP, a group dedicated to helping children effect with cancer.
  7. Spontaneous events; Such as the 2013 flooding crises, SCC strives help wherever it finds people in crises.
  8. Mosque project; The project was designed to give everyone a chance gain ongoing blessings or Sadag for themselves or loved ones that passed away. The mosque is being built in a remote area where people align bricks in the shape of a mosque to pray their daily prayers. The mosque will also act as a place for shelter and Islamic teaching.
